International Education Studies, v8 n4 p23-28 2015
The main objective of this case study is to examine secondary education teachers' opinions concerning the connection of environmental education with the use of experiential teaching methods. Exploring whether the application of experiential methods can upgrade the learning procedure, leading to a more holistic approach, the research focuses on certain aspects of today's educational reality in the field of secondary environmental education. Studying a sample of secondary education teachers in Northern Greece, among the research's main findings is teachers' belief that environmental education can play an important role in today's educational reality, as respondents acknowledge that environmental education in secondary schools can serve as a useful tool for integrating environmental values into students' everyday life.
